I'd always imagined Fenchurch as slim, brunette, and blue eyed. However, I wont rule out Catherine Zeta Jones, if only because she comes from near me.

I find her perfect for that part, but who could be Trillian? You need a young, slim, abit tall girl, with a mean spark in her eyes. I'd suggest Angelina Jolie, but she's too american for me... Maybe Natalie Portman? Hmmmm....

Natalie Portman? I would have said she was even more American (yeah, I know she's from Isreal originally but you couldn't tell by listening to her). I always saw Trillian as a little older really...

You are right! Well... mmmm... 25ish, I think, and good looking brunette.... well, that's hard! Deffinately not Minnie Driver, maybe Camrun Diaz? After John Malkovitch, I believe she can be anyone, and she sure has the mean spark in her eyes, the little smiley - devil!

Didn't the book say, and I quote,
"Trillian was a girl that Zaphod had picked up recently while visiting a planet, just for fun, incognito. She was slim, darkish, humanoid, with long waves of black hair, a full mouth, an odd little knob of a nose and ridiculously brown eyes. With her red head scarf knotted in that particular way and her long flowing silky brown dress, she looked vaguely Arabic."--The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, chapter four.


We need Hugh Frasier (from POIROT) to play Arthur. He's British and always looks confused. He's perfect.

Well, in that case- I've got a perfect Trillian- does any one watch Hallmark? They have this feature about Cleopatra, and the girl that does the role of Cleopatra's called Leonora... something. She's slim, tallish, waves of black hair and plays an Egyptian queen- what else can you ask of a girl? And I'm still votin' for Hugh Grant as Arthur.

I'd like to see the Hugh Frasier - Hugh Grant fight. Let's have Carey Grant as Slartibartfast and that woman who played Lora on The Brittas Empire as Fenchurch.

No, really. Lora would make a perfect Fenchurch: She smart, charming, attractive, British, able to fly...

I rather fancy Jim for a Vogon though.....appropriately made up so we don't have to see his silly faces.....Tony Blair for the Electric Monk anyone?

That's exactly what I said before. The entire cast of The Brittas Empire, strategically placed in and amung the cast, like Linda as the woman with the head like the Sydney Opera House, and Gaven as one of the mice...

I belive Robin Williams would make an excellent Arthur, heh, and I can see Jim Cary as Zaphod, or even better, Ford... Yes, and excellent Ford!!

I think we need to totally forget about Jim Carey playing any of our favourite characters. He might do a passable Max Quordlepleen though. And what of the whole concept of a Hollywood version of the Guide. Is this a concern in itself???

SHOULD it be a concern? I think so! IS it a concern? Idoubt it!

I heard They gave DNA full artistic freedom, whith is unheard of today unless they expect either a big hit, or, if there are too many deviations from the book, a total bomb, on several continents.
